Hike Chippewa Creek

Rate this Adventure Ohio Chippewa Creek Gorge Overlook

Added by Andrew Gacom

Beautiful scenery that is 'off the beaten path.' All of my adventures I post I try my best to get people to leave the trail, this is another one. All of the beauty of the Brecksville Reservation can be found down at this creek!! It is rare you will see people other than you down there, beautiful relaxing area and GREAT for pictures!!

Park at the Chippewa Gorge Scenic Overlook and then take the trail south into the woods. About 1/4 mile in just past the covered picnic tables, there will be a slope to the left. This slope is not steep whatsoever and is very easy to take. Take this all the way down to the creek. You can then either take the creek north back up the gorge area or take it south. While you are down there, there will be huge boulders and rushing water in certain areas.

Make sure you bring waterproof hiking boots and make sure they get very good traction!
